Notes/Commercial Description:
Coal Black and creamy smooth, this beer holds a light tan head and is surprisingly light in body - so it won't fill you up.

Reviewed from notes. Had during a stop during our drive through West Virginia.

Pours very dark with a slight tan head. The nose brings some slightly-roasted malt and a little bit of chocolate. The taste is mostly roast and doesn't bring too much else. A bit dry and overly bitter from the roast. Drinkability is good enough, but this is a bit one dimensional and doesn't hit the right spots.

Serving type: on-tap

Appearance: black in color with a big 3" head that slowly falls to a thick surface foam. Some moderate lacing paints the glass.

Smell: roasted malt and softer chocolate tones are detectable.

Taste: roasted malt, dark chocolate, prunes, milder coffee tones, and some oat presence. Bitterness is mild.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Smooth from start to finish. Long lived aftertaste.

Drinkability: this beer was easy to drink and it hit the spot. A few can be easily had in a session.

Review from notes taken 2/6/11. On tap at the brewpub (Maryland location) served in a pint. Appears dark brown with a creamy finger of tan head that recedes quickly leaving patchy lace on the glass. When held to the light, it displays clarity and lighter brown around the edges.

The aroma is quite muted but has a light roast character. A bit of chocolate malt and coffee tones are evident. This brew was served excessively cold and even once it was warm it still was a very muted aroma.

The taste of this brew is equally light and muted when considering the lack of aroma. What does come through is lightly roasted malt with a mild bitterness. Coffee, light grain flavor. Mild citrus hop flavoring towards the back. Lingering grain aftertaste.

Medium bodied and modestly carbed. A little watery in the feel and lacking that typical oat smoothness. Regardless fairly drinkable and completely fits the bill of this brewery's description: Light crafted ales served in an area that drinks light beer.

The Miner's Daughter Oatmeal Stout pours very dark indeed, with an off white head. Aroma is of roasted malt and an almost lactic sweetness. In the taste, vanilla, some roasted malt and certainly oats all contributing to a rather sweet stout. A little bit of chocolate. Surprisingly light bodied for the style, and the oatmeal adds to the smooth silky finish. Definately the best beer I've had from Mountain State, I'd stick with this one.

Had on tap at the brewery. Pour is dark hazy honey brown. Nose has nutty and caramel malt with a floral green hop balance. Taste is sweet, loads of caramel, lightly nutty, faint citrus, hop sweetness, herbal and green with light peppery spice and lingering bitterness. Body is syrupy, decent carb, fairly dry in the finish.

On-tap at the brewery, served in a Mason jar. (Gotta love WV!)

Pours coal-black with a nicely retained, rocky tan head. Decent lacing and head retention. Aroma was a decent blend on the oats and pale chocolate, plus some coffee and biscuity malts. Overall, I would've liked it to be a bit stronger.

The flavor was a very satisfying blend of creamy oats, cocoa, roasted malts and a hint of earthen hops. Very smooth mouthfeel, but a bit light body-wise (I blame the 6% ABV limit...), although this did make for an extremely drinkable oatmeal stout. I would definately have this again, and am kicking myself for not grabbing a growler of this in addition to the Almost Heaven Amber that I purchased.

An excellent oatmeal stout! It has a wonderful dark appearance with an excellent rich aroma, with a very soft hint of the oatmeal they put into it. It pours great, leaving a nice head with very good lacing. The taste is great, a true oatmeal stout, unlike a lot of stouts that just have a slight hint of oatmeal, this one has a strong flavor, but not so much that it's overpowering. I tried a taste of it at the brewery and was impressed enough to bring a growler home, which went much too fast. Luckily, I can also find it locally here in Morgantown, WV, at Black Bear Burritos.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a black color with a thick frothy one and a half finger head that is tan in color. The head settles but gives way to some decent lacing. The aroma is of chocolate malts and oatmeal with a hint of coffee. The taste has a nice roasted malt backbone with notes of chocolate, sweet oats, and coffee present. Big flavor. The mouthfeel was moderately carbonated, but slightly over carbonated for the style. The drinkability is very high, other than the mouthfeel everything about this beer left you wanting more. The mouthfeel is also a minor thing with this taste.

A- Dark brown body, settles into the glass with a foamy, light brown head.

S- Oats, roasted malts, hints of coffee, very nice nose.

T- Somewhat lacking in flavor. A little bit of a bitter flavor, with some roasted malts coming through, but also somewhat of a sourness to it.

M- Slightly flat, with low carbonation and a medium-light body.

O- Looks good, smells good, but the flavor and feel are far behind.

On tap at the grill in Snowshoe. Pours black. Aroma was toasted malts and bread with some hops in the background. Body was somewhat watery for a stout, but very smooth. Flavor of bitter-sour hops balanced by toasted malts with a long coffee finish. Quite average brew but at least drinkable.

Draft at Foxfire Grille, Snowshoe Mountain, WV. Has a fairly grapefruity hop aroma with a dash of roasted coffee thrown in. The body is dark brown to black and the finger sized tan head fades immediately. Fore is grapefruit and mild roast. Thin body. Sort of a black pale ale, but not a particuarly good pale ale....and a fairly crappy stout.

This came out a nice dark brown with a decent tan head. Lacing is evedent on the glass, and some pretty ruby hues show through when held to the light.

Aroma of dark roasted malts and lightly roasted coffee. Taste is roasty and smooth with a bit of hop bitterness. Really a nice creamy oatmeal stout. Nice feel and after two pints I could have continued drinking this for an entire session if I wasn't driving.
